Kirwan's story is an excellent study on how we hurt ourselves the most by carrying grudges for decades. By the time Meaghan reaches out to her estranged father, it's too late. The man she once knew is lost to elderly dementia.
Further, Impervious take small town secrets and gossip and turns the stereotype on its ear. From the president of the city council who's literally a wicked b***h of a witch to Meaghan's fairy assistant (and I don't mean he's homosexual), each reveal cracked me up.
And finally, Kirwan tackles second chances. Whether it's Meaghan's career, her relationship with her family, or her love life, I rooted for her the whole way. At fifty, you're tired and worn out and you really question whether it's worth putting the energy into something or someone that's just like the last thing that broke your heart. But I really wanted the heroine to try again!
If you want story that has plenty of action as well as a deep emotional tug, check out Impervious. (It's worth it for the scene alone where Meaghan takes out an evil wizard in her brother's kitchen. Bruce Willis couldn't have done it better!)
Meaghan is an awesome heroine. Her mystical power is that she has no mystical power. Her hair is white, not due to magic, but because she is 50 years old. Her knees hurt when she is forced to kneel. Her weapon of choice is a well-made saucepan. Her estranged father has Alzheimer's disease, and she must deal with him just as any of us would. Her 'brave new world' is scary, funny, horrifying, and beautiful. The people of Eldrich are also scary, funny, horrifying, and beautiful. Kirwan plans on seven books. I will happily buy every book
Meaghan is a character I wanted to get to know. There's not just supernatural fantasy in this book, there are real people with real relationships and problems. There is bad blood between Meaghan and her father and brother, and over the course of the book, not only do you find out why, you see them try to patch things up the best they can. There were times I laughed out loud, and other times there were tears in my eyes, because I felt like I was right with Meaghan during the story. When you read a book like this, you spend a lot of time with the main character, and Meaghan was someone I really wanted to hang out with. She's smart, she's funny, and she can kick ass with a frying pan. I could definitely spend seven books' worth of time with Meaghan.
The pace of this book is just right. There are scenes with a lot of slam-bang action, and then quiet, reflective parts. The town has secrets, and so do the people, and you get to figure things out constantly as you read it. A lot of the scenes in this book have stuck with me over time.
My only problem with the book, and it's a tiny one, was that so many characters' names started with the same letter. I think there are four characters that start with M, and three start with J. It got hard for me to remember which one was Melanie and which one was Marnie, etc. But that's very minor, when a book is as much fun as this one is.
There's a little bit of romance, a lot of action, some laughs, and some pulling of the heartstrings in this book. I had a blast reading it, and I can't wait for book two!
